Memories from the Mayor

    A Really Good Edger

    Back in 1980, I called Wayne Littlejohn, owner of Calvert City’s Western Auto, and asked him to order me a “really good” grass edger. Well, in a short time, Mr. Littlejohn called to tell me the edger was at the store. Can you believe that today I had to install a new air filter, the old filter was gone, finished. I had to wrap it in a paper towel to transport to NAPA to make sure I exchanged for the correct filter.

    I did, it worked, and Mr. Littlejohn’s “really good edger” still works perfectly. I would say that “you don’t find equipment of that quality anymore,” but Stan Griggs bought a grass edger for the City a couple of years ago, yea, the same edger that Mr. Littlejohn sold me in 1980. Good products don’t have to change and get fancy. I wish I could tell Mr. Littlejohn “thanks” for taking care of me, but I can’t. I’ve told you and if you know how wonderful Mr. Littlejohn was to everybody, you would know the rest of the story.

    Sorry, got to go, time to edge grass with my 1980 grass edger bought from Calvert City Western Auto! Mayor Jones
